Maternity Photos in Hobe Sound | Shelby + Brian

Hobe Sound, FL Maternity Session

I seem to never grow tired of photographing maternity sessions. They are some of my favorite sessions. One of the things that I am particularly fond of is photographing first time mommies. The anticipation and joy that they have for what is to come is so refreshing. And, it brings me back to when I carried Easton and how I felt prior to his arrival. The best advice I can give to expectant first time mommies is to get enough rest and also enjoy the last few months of it just being you and your husband. 

I was so happy to photograph Shelby and Brian's maternity session at Hobe Sound Nature Center this past week. We had a wonderful session and perfect weather! I expected there to be mosquitos and humidity, but thankfully, none of that was apparent.  Both Shelby and Brian are a dream and their baby girl is expected to be here in early Sept 2018, what a lucky girl to have such amazing parents!

Here are some of my favorite images from our time together!

Maternity Photos on the Beach | House of Refuge

This sweet family drove all the way from Boynton Beach to photograph their maternity session at sunrise! I am so honored that they would wake up so early to have me photograph them! Coming from someone who now has a toddler, I can say that it is no easy feat getting out of the house looking as good as they did. (Seems like it takes us at LEAST an hour to get out of the door these days!!)

We took advantage of the slightly cooler temperatures that we had that morning. Though, it was still hot, it was not nearly as bad as it is towards the end of the day when I do the majority of my sessions. So, we were happy that we opted with choosing this time. 

House of Refuge is a place that I have photographed at a lot in the past few months. Each time I visit, I try to see it and photograph it in new ways. Being that this was a sunrise session, we had beautiful soft light coming from the ocean. I prefer this time of day to the afternoon for this reason alone! Here are some of my favorites from our time together!

Meet Peyton | High School Senior

It was a beautiful afternoon to photograph senior portraits! 

After a couple of scheduling conflicts, we finally got to get together for Peyton's senior photos! I was so excited to photograph Peyton again! We had previously met at a shoot that I did for All For Color/Sloan Ranger. And, we actually go to the same church! Small world! 

Peyton is a senior at Community Christian Academy and she works at Chick Fil A, one of my favorite places!! She's got a super sweet personality and a gorgeous smile! Doesn't she look like Drew Barrymore?! Anyways, here are a few of my favorite photos from our session!!

Meet Alaina | High School Senior

First time I have ever photographed a HORSE on location! I just loved my senior session with Alaina...and George! Our senior session took place at the Rider's Edge Equestrian Center in Palm City. I arrived early in the morning and was hoping that the rain would hold off. Thankfully, it was sunny for us the whole time! 

Alaina is a senior at Jensen Beach High School and has been riding for about ten years. George has become one of the best parts of her day. He's as gentle as a puppy and even lets her give him kisses on the nose! Alaina, I had so much fun at our session! Thank you for allowing me to capture you in your element!

Meet Brandon | High School Senior

 

I was so excited to get to have another high school senior in front of my camera this week! Meet Brandon! He is a senior at Community Christian Academy and aspires to go into film!! Our session was fun because he understood the importance of shooting in good light. And good light is just what we had! Thankfully the sun was out and gave us the lighting that I just love to shoot in! 

Here are a couple of my fave's from our session, enjoy!

Meet Jett | High School Senior Photos

Coral Cove Beach, Jupiter FL

It's not every day that I get to photograph a model! For real, Jett was actually a model for H+M! I had a blast shooting, and editing!! His Mom contacted me a few weeks ago and wanted to set up a session. They live in Wellington, so we actually decided we would meet up in Jupiter, sort of a half way mark. Coral Cove Beach. Ahh, it's been such a long time since I shot there! Fun fact: I shot my very FIRST family session at this beach back in 2005. It was nice to go back and it definitely makes me want schedule more sessions there! 

I definitely photograph more senior girls than I do senior boys. But it's always a nice change to photograph a senior boy. Posing them is completely different than posing a girl! And for some reason or another, the boys just fall right into their pose naturally. I didn't have to give Jett much direction. With his background in modeling, all I had to do was shoot! :) Here are a few favorites!

Meet Katie | High School Senior Photos

I was so happy when Katie contacted me and wanted me to photograph her! She and I had met a few weeks back at the shoot that I did for All For Color, Prep Obsessed and Sloane Ranger. Katie was one of the seniors who participated in the shoot.

Katie is amazing, she goes to Martin County Highschool, class of 2018 and during the summer is working full-time with toddlers at a school. I know how challenging it can be to raise a baby, and this girl is with kids allllll day long. Bless her! :) She loves what she does though! AND, she has her OWN business making monograms! Busy lady! For a high school senior, she sure does knock me out of the water! 

I had so much fun photographing Katie at Indian Riverside Park. Her smile says it all; she is a bubbly, outgoing girl! And those blue eyes just POP in these images, don't you think?!

Meet Baby Logan | Newborn Session

I've never been more excited to shoot newborns than I am now! Ever since I had a baby, I see newborn photography in a whole new way. The preciousness of life that you hold in your arms is something that stays with you and gives you a greater depth of appreciation for. 

Baby Logan is two weeks old, isn't he just adorable?! His mama and daddy are doing such a wonderful job with him!

Monica + Ryan | Maternity Photos

House of Refuge

Stuart, FL

Not only did I get the honor of photographing their engagement photos and wedding, I am now photographing their maternity session! I am overjoyed for my Monica and Ryan! They are due to welcome their baby girl this summer! It will be their first baby and I am so excited for them!

I talk to Monica all the time about my experience with pregnancy, delivery, and having a little baby, it's so fun to be going through this season of life with a friend! (I've known Monica since 7th grade!) 

Ryan and Monica's session was taken at The House of Refuge in Stuart. Monica wore some amazing outfits. My favorite was the cream colored off the shoulder long sleeved maxi dress, she looked so stunning in it!! 

These two are going to be wonderful parents and they will no doubt have a beautiful baby (I can't wait to see her!) Thank you to Monica and Ryan for giving me the privilege of documenting such a beautiful time in their marriage! :)

High School Senior | Justin

Stuart, FL

Love, love, love photographing seniors! Meet Justin! He was referred to me by the mother of this senior, and that senior (Thanks, Frances!!). Justin is in the graduating class of 2017 at Jensen Beach High School...he is such a photographic young man with a super sweet spirit. He plans on going to FSU for dentistry school! 

The afternoon light was butter. So beautiful. And it was SO good for me to get out of the house and get some late afternoon salt air in my lungs. It's amazing how refreshing being by the water is. I literally could do shoots like this one every day of the week, I love it that much!!

Justin, thanks so much for the fun session! You're going to make an awesome dentist! Best of luck in college!!!

Meet Baylee | Sunrise Senior Session

Meet Baylee | Sunrise Senior Session

Hobe Sound, Fl

Last week I woke up before the sunrise to get myself ready to meet Baylee, a senior at Jensen Beach High School. She has been friends with Julia, featured here, and wanted to have her session at the same location; Hobe Sound Nature Center. Of course, I was excited, it's such a beautiful place for portraits, especially at sunrise. 

I think Baylee might have had a few laughs at me as I attempted to squat down into poses with my 8 month pregnant belly while carrying my reflector and camera :) It's ok, I laughed at myself! Finally I came to the realization that it would be better if I talked her through the poses rather than try to show her! 

Either way, her portraits came out gorgeous and she rocked it out! Here are some of my favorites! Enjoy!

Meet Julia | Fall Senior Session

Meet Julia | Fall Senior Session

Hobe Sound, FL 

It was one of the coolest mornings that we have had all fall season, here in South Florida. As a Floridian, any drop in temperature below 77 degrees is considered cold :) The good thing: it was a perfect time for photos. 

Julia met me early in the morning for a sunrise photo session. I've shot so many times during the late evening golden hour and have loved the results. But there is just something different when shooting at sunrise that I love. We lucked out with a perfect ratio of sun/clouds, where the clouds were just enough to filter the golden light of the day. 

Julia is a senior at Jensen Beach High School and will be graduating in 2017. After she graduates she would love to go to UCF where she plans on pursuing a degree in nursing. I can already tell just by my short interaction with her that she will make an excellent nurse. She's got a very calming a sweet spirit :) She could also make a career at modeling--she's gorgeous!! 

Here are a few of my favorites from our shoot!

If you saw yesterday's blog post, you might be thinking, "Why is she posting this again?" Well, that's not exactly the case. Yesterday's post was about Allison. Today, meet Natalie! Yep, twins! Natalie and Allison had their session at the same time. It's ok, I got them confused many times. But now, I finally know who is who! :) Like Allison, Natalie was also featured in this post with the clothing line All For Color

You may or may not remember Allison! She was featured in this post with the lifestyle fashion clothing line All For Color. It was so great to work with her again on this shoot! We got some AMAZING light out at the beach, The House of Refuge on Hutchinson Island. When I say the weather couldn't have been more perfect, I truly to do mean it. I've been so grateful for these sunny evenings that we have had, they make for such gorgeous portraits :)

I've been meaning to blog these images! So excited to finally share them!!

Meet Julia | Fall Senior Session

Stuart, Florida

Julia and I had a BLAST at our shoot! She admitted to me that she felt a little awkward in front of the camera, and we both agreed that pretending we were just taking selfies was the best way to make light of it :) 

We shot in downtown Stuart, particularly Sailor's Return area. I've done several shoots here and love the light that it has to offer during golden hour. One thing I absolutely loved about Julia was her HAIR! Most girls would do anything for curls like those! 

Here are a few of my favorite shots of Julia. I'm starting off this post with the first image being my absolute favorite! The light was stunning and the pop of pink worked so well with this shot!

Baby Lifestyle Session

Guys, I photographed the CUTEST little guy last week! Meet Bradley! His momma, Jessica, is one of my girl friends that I’ve known for years, you may remember her from this maternity session (Just loved that shoot!). Baby Bradley is one of the sweetest little guys ever! You will just die when you see his bow tie, hat, and suspenders! Taking photos of him got me really pumped for when our little one arrives! Jessica, I may have to borrow this outfit! Lol! (I’m serious).

Lifestyle Fashion Shoot: All For Color + Sloan Ranger

Lifestyle Fashion Shoot: All For Color + Sloan Ranger

A few weeks ago I had the privilege to work with not one, but TWO amazing fashion companies: All For Color and Sloan Ranger. How fun!! 

All For Color is a super cute colorful (just like their name) clothing company specializing in bright, poppy and fun clothes. I've got a couple of sets of their exercise apparel at home. I love my pineapple leggings, they make working out more fun for me!

Sloan Ranger is mainly an accessory company that specializes in the more preppy, chic look. Their bags are really cute! I bought a colorful green palm leaf duffel bag a while back and have already made plans for it to be my hospital bag for when Baby Browning comes! (Due Feb 2017).

We had so much fun doing this shoot for their Fall 2016 line. Here are some of my favorites!

Outdoor Maternity Session | Hobe Sound, FL

Maternity Photos: Hobe Sound Nature Center

Featuring Ashley + Crisman

Spring is in the air! Well, at least it has been lately with the cooler evenings we have been having. It’s hard when you live in South Florida to experience the seasons as the rest of the country does. But I’ll pretend that we are!

I am excited to be posting Ashley and Crisman’s maternity session at The Hobe Sound Nature Center! It was a gorgeous spring afternoon, we couldn’t have had a better day! Ashley choose this location because of it’s natural woodsy appeal, plus the fact that it has an access to a little white sand beach that leads to the Intracoastal. I’ve shot at this location before, but I had never gone down any of the hiking trails that they have. I was pleasantly surprised and will definitely be visiting it again for a hike in the near future!

In a few weeks, these two will be parents for the first time! And they are totally over the moon excited! I’ve known Ashley since our days working on the 4th floor of the hospital. She has always had a gentle and patient spirit about her. I just know she will be a fantastic mommy!! Crisman is already envisioning the time when his little boy can walk and talk :) 

Ashley and Crisman, thank you for allowing me to document this oh so special time in your lives!! I have a great confidence that you two will be amazing parents to your little boy!

Country Maternity Session: Josh + Jess

Jessica and Josh are expecting and words cannot express how GRATEFUL I am to have documented their pregnancy! Jessica is the kind of girl that can shine in a dark room. She's like a tall glass of sweet tea, giving everyone a smile and encouragement! These photos of her and Josh just capture her radiant spirit. I love them! 

We took these out at DuPois, off of Kanner Highway. Wayyyy out in the boonies! It was the perfect spot for a country inspired maternity session. The barns and the open fields gave us just the right amount of rustic touch! Jessica laughed as she picked up a few critters in that tulle skirt of hers lol! Let’s see, we found a few grass hoppers, hay, and a spider, yikes!! It’s ok, no one was harmed! :) 

Jessica, you're going to be a WONDERFUL mama! I cannot wait to see you grow as a mom and pass on your incredible spirit to your baby! Josh, you were such a trooper!! And you will be a great daddy :)
